IT Sligo first in Ireland to get chartered engineer accreditation for online Masters

IT Sligo has become the first IT in Ireland to achieve full chartered engineer accreditation for an online Masters in Engineering.

The Masters focuses on road and transport engineering.

The professional accreditation can now be achieved through parttime, blended online learning while working fulltime in the engineering sector.
